I remember well when the United Nations Conference on the Environment and Development (UNCED) took place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in June 1992. I was living there at the time. UNCED was a successful and inspiring Conference where a number of important international instruments and agreements were adopted, including: the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).
